We don’t want to talk about it, but we know it’s a reality – but let’s say we did get a little girly and share our honest feelings here!
What we strive for
We’re on your side guys. We’re dedicated to promoting awareness about the importance of early detection of prostate and testicular cancer!
Prostate cancer is the leading cancer in males and more than 4000 men are diagnosed annually in South Africa. By encouraging your family, friends, colleagues and associates to get tested early, you may be saving the lives of those you know. We believe there is great hope as in the past two decades most men have survived prostate cancer and a continual diagnosis and early treatment can have an even bigger impact.
Testicular cancer is the most common malignancy of males aged 15 – 35 years and the incidence of testicular cancer is on the increase in South Africa. However, there is hope for South African men who are informed of the disease as more than 90% of all patients with testicular cancer are cured.
Prostate cancer affects 1 in 6 men and is the second most common cause of cancer death in men in the USA and the UK. Early prostate cancer is often completely asymptomatic and men over the age of 50 are therefore encouraged to undergo yearly prostate checks for early detection of the disease.
PinkDrive (Section 21) is addressing the prostate and testicular cancer issue in South Africa by embarking on an awareness and fundraising campaign, the Prostate and Testicular Cancer Education and Awareness Campaign.
